Climbing the Giralda Tower in Seville!

With my Diana Mini, Redscale, and with a tourist's attitude, we're going to visit the Giralda in Seville - and climb to its top! I invite you to discover a piece of Sevilla, one of the most beautiful cities in the south of Spain!

The Giralda is the bell tower of Santa Maria Cathedral in Seville, Andalucia, Spain. Part of the tower was built during the twelfth century, but its top is part of the Christian era. At 97.5 meters high, it was the tallest tower in Spain for centuries and is currently the tallest in the city but is also one of the most visited monuments in the country.

To learn more about its history and architectural style, I invite you to visit its Wikipedia page

You can visit it and in the guided tour, you can visit the cathedral and the tower. However, it’s important to see it surroundings, full of horse carriages and gypsies trying to fake tourists in several ways, take care!

But it’s also important and you can’t miss the climb to the tower (get some air because you’ll need it), but once you reach the top, the view is breathtaking, a view of the city extends on all sides, so you can know how disorganized the layout of the city is. If you visit Seville, the Giralda Tower is a monument that you must visit! As you can see, the pictures from the top are amazing!

Prices:
Normal rate: 7 euros (Sundays free)
Reduced price: 1.50 euros

    Vicuna's Travel Stories | Sunrise in the Desert

    Burkina Faso is a country that has three different climatic areas. It's mostly a land of the Sahel, very dry but with some vegetation and a short rainy season. The very south of the country is already in the tropical zone but the north still belongs to the Sahara desert. I had the opportunity to visit this area and witness a magical moment: a sunrise in the desert.

    Kyoto in a Heartbeat

    Like a cluster of cherry blossoms, the temples in Kyoto can stop visitors in their tracks. These people assume the pose of a statue, a camera dangling from their neck and hands. On a first visit especially, the impulse to photograph every angle is constant. The Kinkaku-ji Temple and the torii-lined Fushimi Inari-Taisha are always packed; one would think the tourists would hurry along. But really, many are busy taking snatches of Kyoto with them.

    Angela Izzo on Shooting with the Diana Mini, Photographing Musicians, and Then Some

    While many of us can only dream of working with musicians and photographing them, Angela Izzo's job entails exactly that. Apparently, this is a fulfillment of her own dream that she had when she was younger. In this interview, Izzo talks about her beginnings which, of course, included going to as many shows and festivals as she possibly can; some of her most memorable on-the-job-experiences with the likes of The Doors, Lykke Li, Jack White, Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, and Chris Robinson Brotherhood; her inspirations and other interests; and her love for film photography and Diana Mini. And to those looking into fulfilling their own dreams of working in the same industry, Izzo also shares helpful advice based on her own experiences.
